In hand knitting - what is Ridge Stich?

    I've ordered a pattern for a cardigan for my baby niece because it looked really lovely and I wanted to have a go. I haven't received the pattern yet, but in case it doesn't have very good instructions can anyone tell me what the basics of Ridge Stitch are and if it's difficult? I'm not a beginner knitter, but I wouldn't class myself as expert either and I'm sure it's the first time I've heard of Ridge Stitch.

    If you get stuck on this one I will try to dig out a book I have on knitting 'pattern' stitches.

    Long time since I followed a pattern, from memory I think it may simply be made up of stocking stitch and garter stitch. Not sure what they are called in other countries (I am from the UK)- I mean a pattern that is made of just knit and purl rows.

      Hi 2uesday,

      I'm from the UK as well and I thought I was familiar with most of the North American terms for the different stitches and patterns, but this is one I can't recall at all.

      Many thanks for your offer of help will take you up on that if I need the help.

      That's a very nice video.  Clear, easy to understand, nice close-up.  And the stitch looks really simple to do.

    The video looks really good,it is nice to be able to pause and replay the stitch method until you can see how it is worked.Great idea.

      I agree with this. I have a lot of good knitting books, but sometimes the photos are a bit difficult to interepret. At least with the video you see the stitch actually being made and can then go back to replay.
